Intake questions.

Has anyone ever made there own intake, i mean im going to go and get the the right stuff but i figured it would be alot cheaper than buying one and could do it my own way, but if you know what im talking about there is a sensor on the intake hat, do i just drill a hole and remount it on the new pipe of my intake now?, anyone that has done this let me know thanks guys.

Yes you drill a hole in the tube, insert a rubber grommet, install air flow sensor (sensor blade vertical to the tube) into the grommet, and plug up the electrical connector.

It's a Air Inlet Temperature sensor (AIT) Dealer has the extended stock (SRT) for around $4. And no I don't have the number.

Use 4" and then a tapered reducer to 3" right before throttle body and it speeds the air flow up a tiny bit giving you a tad increase in perf over a standard straight pipe intake

If you use metal be sure to wrap it so it stays cool. Heated air will negate a CAI system. Plastic is better as it will stay cooler.

Check out siliconeintakes.com
Cheapest way to go is a 3.5" 90 off the TB, a 1ft 3.5" aluminum pipe then a 3.5" straight coupler to the stock box. Get some 18ga wire and extend the IAT sensor to wherever you want lol. Some put it behind the passenger headlight. You could still a hole and put it in the stock box. Get a 1-1.5" price of rubber house abd put the sensor inside that. That'll protect it. Then get a spectre 4" intake duff mount from oreilly, about 5$, then get a 4" 45 as well as a 4" 1ft aluminum pipe. Puts it right behind the bumper. Don't forget extra pipe clamps. You may have to move your washer and coolant bottles over about a half inch. With shipping the whole setup not including the duct mount should run right about $100/$110.
You can get red blue or black silicone connectors!
For those who are, they do offer military discount.

I'll post some pics of mine when I get it next week :-)
